TRAINING AND IMPROVEMENT IN TEACHING STANDARDS ARE THE KEY TO BRINGING ABOUT POSITIVE CHANGE IN RURAL HIMALAYAN SCHOOLS
We invest in training local teachers in modern professional teaching methods, appropriate to the children and their culture. Teachers use both Nepali and English in their classes, with locally produced educational materials. Teachers joining our programme come to our training centre in Sangachok, and learn side by side in a real classroom environment with our staff and teacher trainers. They then return to their own classrooms and continue their professional development through an ongoing supervisory and mentoring programme.
Our training programme has been carefully designed by our education team, to ensure it is culturally appropriate for success in rural village schools.
Training is aimed at increasing teachers ability to convey ideas in clear and convincing ways, to create effective learning environments for children and to foster productive teacher-student relationships. We seek to improve teachers skills, motivation, enthusiasm and creativity.
Following initial training, we provide refresher workshops which are essential to ensure long term success.
